Poetry Contest Honorable Mention: Mr. Farney’s Class

This poem was a highly commended entry in the 2019 Words Unlocked poetry contest hosted by the Center for Educational Excellence in Alternative Settings. 

I’m the wind in a golden Baritone

Blowing away the pain.

As the symphony’s loud noises

Float in the air

It drowns out the agony you

Feel in your body,

The music is the warmth

In the heart and it

Vibrates my body and

Makes me alive in new ways.

The silence comes after

Our magnificent work.

The conductor taps

And says “One more round”

And away we go.
